You’ve probably heard of second album syndrome. After pouring all their formative energies and sometimes entire years of dreaming, writing and striving into a thrilling debut album, the band then falls flat on the follow-up. It did break the Top 10, which is no mean achievement for a new band, but musically it was a little too measured, a little too moderate. This time they’ve turned things up to 11 and it makes all the difference. This opening track actually served as a reintroduction to the band some weeks ago, and it was a wise strategy. Not every song here follows the same format, but this is an album built largely on big, winding grooves.

T he first warning is that standard-issue indie-band name, nicked from a legendary race of superwomen by four young men from Reading. The second is opener Stay With Me, which barrels in like a generic version of the Vaccines, minus the active ingredient. It's a brilliant album from a group of hardworking lads who support their local music scene, so there.
